- ... In their aqueous habitats, fish are exposed to a wide range of osmotic conditions and differ in their abilities to respond adaptively to these variations in salinity. Fish species that inhabit environments characterized by significant salinity fluctuation (intertidal zone, estuaries, salt lakes, etc.) are euryhaline and able to adapt to osmotic stress. Adaptive and acclimatory responses of fish to ...
